Sarah Michelle Gellar's new drama Ringer has been picked up by Sky Living.

The channel has landed the exclusive UK rights to the show in a multi-season deal, it was announced today.

Ringer stars Gellar, who is best known for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as a woman called Bridget who goes on the run.

Bridget ends up assuming the identity of her twin sister Siobhan, but soon discovers that Siobhan's life is not as perfect as it appears.

The cast also includes Fantastic Four's Ioan Gruffudd, Lost actor Nestor Carbonell, Life Unexpected's Kristoffer Polaha and Damages actress Tara Summers.

BSkyB's acquisitions manager Louisa Forsyth said: "Securing Ringer exclusively for Sky Living demonstrates yet again our commitment to owning the very best in primetime US drama.

"The combination of impeccable casting with the TV legend that is Sarah Michelle Gellar and seasoned British actor Ioan Gruffudd, coupled with the show's edgy suspense will ensure that viewers, and especially Buffy fans, are certainly in for a treat this autumn."

Gellar recently revealed that she is enjoying working on Ringer, while the show's executive producers have promised "twists and turns and secrets".

Ringer is expected to air in the UK shortly after its US premiere on September 13 on The CW.
